Setting up an Android development environment can be a complex task. NVIDIA simplifies this for all Android developers with a single installer that manages this complexity for you on Windows 7/8.1 (64-bit), Mac OS X, and Ubuntu Linux (64-bit). CodeWorks for Android installs all software tools required to develop for Android, and is the perfect companion for developing native Android applications. This suite of developer tools will configure a development environment that will work with almost any Android device. In addition, CodeWorks for Android unleashes the full potential of NVIDIA Tegra mobile processors with a comprehensive set of advanced debugging and profiling tools for CPU and GPU intensive applications.
Development tools installed include the following: NVIDIA Developer Tools, Android SDK, Android NDK, JDK, Eclipse, CDT, ADT, Gradle and Apache Ant.
The NVIDIA GameWorks Registered Developer Program is an important part of NVIDIA's commitment to the GameWorks Developer community. This program gives NVIDIA a way to provide pre-release information and content to its most important developers, and enable two-way communication about issues and feature requests. It also provides you with the latest Tegra news, updates, developer tools, samples, OS images, and tips and tricks that aren’t available to the public. Plus, all development tools are freely available to members of the NVIDIA GameWorks Registered Developer Program.

Note: Note that if you are on a corporate network that uses a proxy server, the download process may fail. To work around this, you can set environment value
http_proxymanually to use the proxy for downloading.
For example, you can set
http_proxy= http://username:firstname.lastname@example.org:portnum. After setting this environment variable, the installer will use the proxy to download the CodeWorks for Android components.
